He is solid captain material... probably an excellent locker room diplomat too.
The Oilers could use a guy like that.
People are too quick to evaluate players on cap hit and stats and don't factor heart, grit, 2 way play and leadership.
His offense alone doesn't justify 5 mil cap hit but the totality does. You also have to factor that he was brought in as a UFA, those have a 500k-1mil annual premium having multiple teams bidding on them. You are buying the player not just paying him regular market value.
